AC Williams cast iron Skyscraper still bank
AC Williams cast iron Skyscraper Still bank
This skyscraper bank is all that is good with early American penny banks. It is well made, iconic in style, and does its job for storing pennies.
There is not much dust on the top, so colors are extra golden. Then the bottom has few scrapes, showing its well cared-for life.
Though it may not be as big or glitzy as others, our example is in very very very high condition. It came from an adult collector’s bank collection. Our thought is that it was a popular design for a reason & supremely collectible.
